Mapping Out Land Protection

At Five Valleys Land Trust, we have always been a science-based organization. Our goal is identify the habitats and areas within our five valley region that are most critical to protecting water, wildlife, family farms and ranches and public recreation. In 2010, we took a giant leap forward by conducting a GIS study of our entire service area. The map above, shows how the values that define our region overlap with risk of development and other changes. Over the next decade, our focus will be on working with landowners, public agencies and other organizations to conserve and steward these valuable places.
